/site/ - Site Issues

The board for discussing site related issues, questions, concerns, and suggestions.
Name

This field is optional. You can choose any name you want, or you can post anonymously by leaving this field empty.

Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

more of a question rather than a request Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 17132

is it possible to add a webp file format to this site?

i ask because more and more images i save are using that file format for some reason

I think the whole point of that format is to try to prevent re uploading of images. Like a really shitty pot metal lock.
You can just open the image in an editor and save it as a jpg or png.

As far as your actual question, thats in zekes realm, but for now, the resaving is the best workaround i know of.

I've been meaning to add webp support for a little while now, the only thing stopping me was that I wasn't sure how much browser support it has, and I didn't want to risk some uploaded files appear broken in browsers without webp support. I looked it up after seeing this thread, and as it turns out, most browsers have supported it for a while now. Actually, the only one that doesn't now is Internet Explorer. If you're still using IE, that's your problem. It doesn't even support webm files without an external library.

The reason it's being used more is that it has better compression than PNG and JPEG, and much more compression than GIF, even with transparency in the webp file

As far as reusing already uploaded files to save space (which isn't even a problem here) I did get an idea a while ago to implement something like that. When you upload a file, it would scan the database to see if that file has already been uploaded somewhere. If it already exists on the hard drive, it would discard the new file and make your post link to the old file. When there are no more posts that use that file, it would then delete it.
The potential problem with this is that it would require TinyBoard to rescan every post in the database when someone uploads a file (and this is an imageboard so many posts have files), which could add complexity and waste time.

yeah, ive been finding webp filetypes to be more common around the web

so i figured it may not be a bad idea to implement it here

Now that I think about it, it could be potentially beneficial to make all thumbnails use the webp format, regardless of what format the file itself is.
The only possible issue I can think of here is that if it doesn't convert all thumbnails to webp and someone is using an old browser without webp support, they would still be able to see the thumbnail, if not the file itself. But if it does do this and someone is using an old browser, they wouldn't even be able to see the thumbnail, and the site would look broken.

While I was reading about webp support, I noticed a site saying that if a browser doesn't support it, you can just use a jpg or a png file in addition to a webm file, but that kind of defeats the purpose here.

well its like you said

pretty much all browsers support webp filetypes

unless someone is stuck in in the 2000

should be fine if i had to guess
